ITINERARY

8:00 AM PICK UP FROM YOUR HOTEL

We will pick you up at your accommodation. Then our guide will get you fitted with a bicycle and helmet. From here, you will cycle through the green, clean and picturesque Siem Reap vegetable village where most of the vegetables and herbs you find in dishes served throughout Siem Reap are grown. Here you can get your farming skills on and pick your own veggies – which will later be used for lunch.

Next, we’ll visit the outdoor market where the locals shop for their fresh ingredients, here you’ll discover the local specialities and choose the best local snacks and fruits to try.

Soon leave the tarmac behind, pedalling down small dirt paths through the scenic countryside and watch as the local farmers cultivate, care for and harvest their produce. Not only that, but there will be lots of water buffaloes lounging about in the mud, so photo opportunities will be endless. Expect friendly greetings from locals as they go about their daily activities.

For lunch, we will get to visit a lovely local family where you’ll learn how to cook Cambodian food and using the ingredients we collected throughout the tour. Returning to Siem Reap around 2 PM.

Amazing culinary cycling adventure

This was a unique tour that we would recommend to others. We enjoyed getting to see how the locals live and learning the Cambodia culinary. The tour guide, Sovuth was very informative and excited throughout the entire trip. He took us through the dirt lane and get a way from main roads. We stopped often for the great photo opportunity as my wife was really loved to shot every single of photo.
The cooking class was our favorite part of the experience, especially with a visit to the local market. Sovuth was so fun and joyful, and his love for food was obvious and infectious. He explained each dish easily and made delicious Cambodian cuisine seem so easy. We were both blown with the experience and would totally recommend this to anyone visiting Siem Reap.

Absolutely one of the highlights for our tour in Cambodia – it was amazing to ride with SreyLeak through countryside and cooking at the private local family house!
The company have organized a very thoughtful and joyful experience – intimate cycling through countryside dirt lanes, and a very relaxed ride to the beautiful villages. SreyLeak made us feel very safe and she made sure that my bike was in perfect condition. We were stopped at the local market where we saw locals prepping for their busy day ahead – this was fanatic to see and we would have never been able to see this if it hadn’t been with Leak. We also went to visit locals farmer house which was fantastic to chat with them as Leak was translated every moment of it. We finished the tour by having a cooking lesson which was great fun. We cooked with a wonderful local chef and get to know a little story beyond Cambodian foods.
This tour was the best part of my holiday in Cambodia – I would have never been able to see these places of again this knowledge without our guide. SreyLeak is a great local guide with a lot of knowledge. I would highly recommend!

The cycling tour is my highlight of this trip. My guide, Leak, is 20 y.o. girl full of life and knowledge. She took me to visit local market and houses to see rice wine making, mushroom picking, and cooking class. Despite the heat she made the ambience very amicable and told me interesting insights of the local culture, which I truly appreciate. For my cooking class we cooked amok, soup, and banana dessert. Everything was well prepared and I sincerely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see more than Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
